Realizing that families have different abilities and resources to pay for summer camp, John Knox Center is utilizing a voluntary three-tiered pricing program. You may choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. It is a “free-will” system; you pick the level that is comfortable and affordable for you. Our goal in introducing tiered pricing is simple. We want to continue to provide Christ centered programming in a safe, welcoming and fun environment, while offering opportunities for partnership for those who value this ministry and wish to help preserve John Knox Center for generations to come.
Tier I – The lowest subsidized rate John Knox Center has historically offered. This price does not reflect what it costs for a camper to attend summer camp.
Tier II – A partially subsidized rate for families who wish to pay a little more and help support the John Knox Center ministry, but cannot afford the full price of camp.
Tier III – The rate which most closely reflects what it costs for a camper to attend John Knox Center, including facility upkeep, staffing, utilities, and equipment.
